    Default Help for a friend who has shocking PMS :(

    My poor bestie is really struggling at the moment. She has always had PMS but the last couple of years it has been Awful for her. She has anxiety, insomnia, exhaustion, horrible moods and irritability. She also has been recently diagnosed with MS so is really struggling to cope with it all.

    She has been to her GP quite a few times and nothing seems to be getting done. She wont take the pill because it makes her worse.

    Is there anyone with experience with this? Is there a solution??

    When I am not eating sugar (fruit is fine and anything with less than 5% sugar in it is fine but no sugar otherwise) I don't get PMS. If I am eating sugar I'm the most horrible tempered person. The difference for me is incredible and it's not that uncommon. I still get a bit tired, but not dog tired exhaustion and no mood swings or irritability at all...if I've had sugar I just spend a week cranky at the world.

    I highly recommend she sees a naturopath. I was sceptical about 'alternative medicines' myself, but after seeing a naturopath my cycles were textbook perfect and not a single PMS symptom. Poor thing, I hope she finds relief soon.

    I agree I would recommend she sees a naturopath, a change in her diet could make a huge difference. I know when I'm off sugar and gluten I feel so much better.

    When you say she won't take the pill coz it makes her worse.. How many has she tried? There are a few on the market, and ppl react to them differently. I tried 4 before finding one that worked for me... I used to have shocking PMS symptoms, but the (right) pill really helped.
